Hey yall! Long-time lurker and lover of these forums. Curious if there are any husband and wife pilots out there that I could talk to or that could share their experience here on the forum. For what its worth, we do not have kids and we are both currently AD.

NOT one and I don't know if any are on here, but I guess they'll speak up if they do. If hesitant, you shouldn't be any more so than you have already experienced. I've worked with two sets that have done this. Both sets were the same airframe, but that shouldn't even be a big deal (to not be) since the airframes are all "mostly" co-located at Army Posts (at least on the FORSCOM side). One set still going, should be about to retire. Other recently divorced (nothing new-one side creeped) and the female is now a CW5 busting the books at the Navy's XP school (WTH? ;)  Kids were had in both scenarios and the normal AD (childcare) issues are to be had.

My best friend and his wife are both aviators, different airframes.  They spend a lot of time apart.

Why/what are the reasons?

I went through flight school with two sets of husbands/wifes. One wound up a chinook/Blackhawk couple at the same duty station, the other, an Apache/Intel couple (yes one requested a branch transfer).

Swift, Silent, Deadly.

The brigade splits a million different ways.  So even though they have been at the same duty station together for a while, their battalions/companies go different places at different times.  We were in Korea she was at home.  We got back from Korea he went to AQC/IPC.  He got back from that she went to Europe.  She got back from Europe he did a rotation to NTC.  You get the picture...

Rare to see this type of couple in the Army....Most end up murdering each other before W4...
